Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because the professor was really knowledgeable with the weekly topics. She was well prepared and really pushed for interaction although this was an online class. The professor also showed concern for our grades. If a lot of students received a bad grade, she would give tips on how to improve and words of encouragement.
I gained a lot of knowledge about hackers. We did assignments that focused on hackers, their motives, personality traits and seeing if we could build a general profile on them. This was tough because even though people have that misconception of what hackers look like; the nerdy kid who no one talks to, it really could be anyone; your next door neighbor, your co-worker. This is not a topic that investigators have been able to build a solid general profile for. A lot more research needs to be put into this.

Advice for students:
Start discussions and assignments on time, do not wait until the last minute or your grade will suffer! Constantly log into the discussion board for new questions, really put an effort into doing good research. If you need anything or are confused, do not hesitate to reach out to the professor, that is why she's there. Do not just stay confused or have your grade suffer.
